On-Farm Demonstration in East Gippsland


Demonstration sites have played an integral role in supporting groups of producers to try new grazing practices and perennial systems from EverGraze and other associated projects to increase profitability and improve environmental outcomes.  Demonstration sites have been either directly linked to EverGraze as Supporting Sites, or associated with other relevant projects.  Where links are provided, these pages provide details of the measurements, observations and experiences of the farmers in the East Gippsland demonstration site groups, and links to relevant research.
